I have experienced what seems to be a game-breaking bug in my save. When I deselect "Control Large Army" and select "AI Control" for reinforcements, my game will crash in the loading screen for a manual battle. Below is the EXACT order of events that seemed to generate this bug:
- I used a garrisoned army to offensively attack a sieging army - I selected both "Control Large Army" AND "AI Control" for reinforcements - I successfully entered the battle but AI did not control any units - I conceded defeat, and reloaded the quick save - I deselected "Control Large Army" and selected "AI Control for reinforcements - When attempting to load back into the battle, the game immediately crashed - I ended the process for the Steam program, reopened steam, and reloaded the quick save (5x) and it kept crashing - I chose to auto resolve the battle without any issue - I chose to manually fight a battle with a garrisoned army offensively against a sieging army in a different settlement and the game crashed in the loading screen
End Result: I now seem to be unable to manually battle as the game keeps crashing each attempt. I am locked into auto resolving.
***EDIT*** - When I choose to fight a manual battle without selecting "Control Large Army" or "AI Control" for reinforcements, the battle loads correctly without issue
End Result: The issue seems to specifically stem from "Control Large Army" and "AI Control" check box options for battle gameplay
